Tuesday, October 5, 2021 - Historian Jerome Greene has a new book out, titled "All Guns Fired at One Time, Native Voices of Wounded Knee, 1890.” The book sets aside official narratives of what was once called a “battle” and centers instead on the voices of survivors and witnesses. In addition to extensive first-person accounts, Greene assembles an array of little-known newspaper stories, interviews, correspondence, and testimony. ~~~ North Dakota native Sarah Wassberg Johnson has coupled her interest in food and her degrees in history to become “The Food Historian.” She joins us to discuss her interesting career path.
